Unwoven Chair: Suspended Seat on Spidery Strands of Silk

It recalls images of abandoned looms, textile works left in progress stretched along threads that weave across the center of a simple wooden frame.

The Silkchair by Alvi Design features a series of durable blue strings tied to solid oak legs, feet and back forming a simple wrapping line around the edges.

As tension is applied, this slack strands band together to form serious supports, able to hold up a person seated along them while providing the most minimalist kind of cushion for both seats and backs you could imagine.
